What is HIGH YIELD DEBT? What does HIGH YIELD DEBT mean? HIGH YIELD DEBT meaning & explanation
 
06:21
What is HIGH YIELD DEBT? What does HIGH YIELD DEBT mean? HIGH YIELD DEBT meaning - HIGH YIELD DEBT definition - HIGH YIELD DEBT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. In finance, a high-yield bond (non-investment-grade bond, speculative-grade bond, or junk bond) is a bond that is rated below investment grade. These bonds have a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events, but typically pay higher yields than better quality bonds in order to make them attractive to investors. Sometimes the company can provide new bonds as a part of yield which can only be redeemed after its expiry or maturity. The holder of any debt is subject to interest rate risk and credit risk, inflationary risk, currency risk, duration risk, convexity risk, repayment of principal risk, streaming income risk, liquidity risk, default risk, maturity risk, reinvestment risk, market risk, political risk, and taxation adjustment risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk of the market value of a bond changing due to changes in the structure or level of interest rates or credit spreads or risk premiums. The credit risk of a high-yield bond refers to the probability and probable loss upon a credit event (i.e., the obligor defaults on scheduled payments or files for bankruptcy, or the bond is restructured), or a credit quality change is issued by a rating agency including Fitch, Moody's, or Standard & Poors. A credit rating agency attempts to describe the risk with a credit rating such as AAA. In North America, the five major agencies are Standard & Poor's, Moody's, Fitch Ratings, Dominion Bond Rating Service and A.M. Best. Bonds in other countries may be rated by US rating agencies or by local credit rating agencies. Rating scales vary; the most popular scale uses (in order of increasing risk) ratings of AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, B, CCC, CC, C, with the additional rating D for debt already in arrears. Government bonds and bonds issued by government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) are often considered to be in a zero-risk category above AAA; and categories like AA and A may sometimes be split into finer subdivisions like "AA-" or "AA+". Bonds rated BBB- and higher are called investment grade bonds. Bonds rated lower than investment grade on their date of issue are called speculative grade bonds, or colloquially as "junk" bonds. The lower-rated debt typically offers a higher yield, making speculative bonds attractive investment vehicles for certain types of portfolios and strategies. Many pension funds and other investors (banks, insurance companies), however, are prohibited in their by-laws from investing in bonds which have ratings below a particular level. As a result, the lower-rated securities have a different investor base than investment-grade bonds. The value of speculative bonds is affected to a higher degree than investment grade bonds by the possibility of default. For example, in a recession interest rates may drop, and the drop in interest rates tends to increase the value of investment grade bonds; however, a recession tends to increase the possibility of default in speculative-grade bonds.

Why “C” Students Are More Successful Than “A” Students
 
11:07
How to be More Successful. We all try to get good grades to later get a well-paid job and succeed in life. Most people including our parents believe it is a direct toad to success. However, according to Robert Kiyosaki, author of Why ‘A’ Students Work for ‘C’ Students and ‘B’ Students Work for the Government, it’s actually the other way around. It’s “A” students that end up being employed by “C” students. We found 8 reasons why “C” students are often more successful in life. Now that’s some food for thought if you want to transform your own life or give good advice to your kids. TIMESTAMPS “C” students question the significance of the academic system. 1:30 They’re not afraid to fail or get bad grades. 2:37 “C” students are risk takers. 3:39 They’re not submissive followers. 4:45 “C” students have people skills. 5:34 They find simpler ways to get things done. 6:30 “C” students are dreamers. 7:16 They have their own definition of success. 7:53 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -“C” students are more interested in a straightforward approach and unfortunately for them, academia doesn’t offer that. They hack their way into the system by taking on odd jobs or learning outside of school. -While “A” students aim for perfection on their first try, “C” students aren’t afraid to fail, even several times! They embrace their shortcomings and learn from them. -“C” students, who received their fair share of “Fs” in their academic life, aren’t afraid to leap into the unknown. They take calculated risks to figure out what they really want in life. -“C” students tend to question everything. They’re not the “Yes” group; they’re more like the “Yes, but…” team. -Besides experimenting in the work force, “C” students also devote themselves to building networks that can benefit them in the long run when they enter the real world. -“C” students don’t wanna put much energy into accomplishing a task, they’d rather be investing their time and effort in pursuing their dream. -“C” students are more interested in thinking about what they wanna do in life rather than being stuck in the four walls of a classroom. -“C” students decide what they want done, and “A” students are good at taking and follow these instructions.

Top 3 Investment-Grade Corporate Bond ETFs
 
06:51
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Depending on your stage of life or the asset allocation in your portfolio, bonds may be a solid choice to provide fixed-income stability and a hedge against more risky equity investments. (See also: 6 Asset Allocation Strategies That Work.) Interest rates have been historically low for many years, making the gold standard, U.S. treasuries, less attractive. That's where investment-grade corporate bonds come in. Corporate bonds offer significantly higher yield in many cases, without an equally significant bump in risk. Yes, corporations do go bankrupt on rare occasions, but investment-grade bonds focus on companies with excellent credit ratings and very low risk of default. (See also: How to Invest in Corporate Bonds.) The problem is that picking institutional bonds is a skill best left to experts, and their fees can easily gobble up gains. Fortunately, there are a number of high-quality investment-grade corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are comparatively inexpensive and highly liquid. You also avoid the market-timing mistakes that so commonly befall amateur investors. Most investors should view bonds and bond ETFs as a strategic asset – a buy-and-hold investment that serves a specific purpose in their overall asset allocation. (See also: Evaluating Bond Funds: Keep It Simple.) If you're looking for a few good corporate bond options to round out your portfolio, here are a few ETFs that rise above their peers. All year-to-date (YTD) performance figures are based on the period of Jan. 1, 2017, through July 14, 2017, unless otherwise noted. Funds were selected on the basis of a combination of assets under management (AUM) and overall performance. All figures are as of July 15, 2017. iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) Issuer: BlackRock Assets Under Management: $36 billion YTD Performance: 4.52% Expense Ratio: 0.15% This is the largest of the corporate bond ETFs and has returned nearly 5.56% since its inception in 2002. The fund tracks the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, investing roughly 90% of its assets into securities in the index, with the balance in cash funds. There are currently 1,691 holdings, heavily tilted toward the banking and consumer non-cyclical sectors. Top issuers include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS). LQD's low expense ratio and solid performance figures make it an attractive choice. One-year, three-year and five-year returns are 0.28%, 3.72% and 3.68%, respectively. (See also: Don't Doubt the Data: Bond ETFs Will Keep Growing.) Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) Issuer: Vanguard Assets Under Management: $19.93 billion YTD Performance: 1.90% Expense Ratio: 0.07% Short-term bonds generally mature within one to five years, and yields are lower than those of their longer-term cousins. This fund tracks the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index and invests about 80% of its assets into securities on the benchmark index.

Chief Investment Officer Greg Davis on the 2018 bond outlook
 
04:35
1/4/2018 Webcast: Our new leaders look ahead to 2018 Hear what the expectations are for bonds in today's market climate. Important information All investing is subject to risk, including possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. High-yield bonds generally have medium- and lower-range credit quality ratings and are therefore subject to a higher level of credit risk than bonds with higher credit quality ratings. For more information about Vanguard funds, visit https://vgi.vg/2G1dTre to obtain a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing. © 2018 The Vanguard Group, Inc.

SA eagerly awaits investment grade credit rating on Friday

We will know on Friday whether or not South Africa can hang onto it's investment grade credit rating - which affects our attractiveness to global investors. S and P will release it's rating decisions. It currently ranks South Africa only one notch above sub-investment grade or so-called junk status with a negative outlook. Ratings affect the interest that investors charge to lend a country money. Higher rates means that government will have less to spend on services and efforts to boost the economy. That means lower economic growth, less jobs and more economic pain. The significance of junk status is that many institutional investors will not even be allowed to lend South Africa money.

Getting junked  Who rates countries' debt and why it matters !
 
01:26
A major ratings agency has downgraded Greek debt to junk status, further damaging the country's efforts to avoid default and raising doubt over the overall health of the euro. France 24 explains how credit rating agencies work and why they matter. Greek debt is currently worth "junk", the major ratings agency Standard and Poor's told investors on Tuesday. The agency also downgraded Portugal's rating to A-. The financial slur marked the first time a eurozone member lost investment-grade rating since the currency's 1999 debut.Greece cried foul at the downgrade, saying the S&P's move did not correspond with the real data. But few investors were listening to Athens. A dip in market confidence led European and then Asian stocks to plunge Tuesday and Wednesday and sent the euro to one-year lows against the dollar. While Portuguese bonds are still investment grade, some market observers think a junk rating will soon infect Portugal. "Contagion will spread to Portugal, to Spain and to other countries and may lead to a second dip in the world recession," warned Ali Fatemi, a professor at the American Graduate School of Business and Economy in Paris. While a rating expresses one opinion about the quality of a credit issuer, the reaction to the Greek downgrade is evidence that ratings can have sweeping consequences for local and global economies. So who are these agencies and why do their opinions matter so much? Making the grade A credit rating agency, or CRA, is a company that gives its opinion about an institution's ability to pay back loans. The largest and most important CRA's are the US-based companies Standard and Poor's, Fitch and Moody's, which are overseen by the Securities and Exchange Commission in their assignment of credit ratings. The institutions they rate include corporations, local governments and states that issue debt-like securities, such as bonds. The CRA's assign credit ratings, based on tiers that are meant to reflect a company or government's creditworthiness. The junk rating refers to the BB+ rating by S&P. This is the highest speculative grade (the best of risky investments) in S&P's letter-rating system. The highest rating, AAA, reflects an "extremely strong capacity to meet financial commitments", according to S&P, while the lowest D rating is issued for institutions that fail to pay their financial commitments. Greece's current BB+ grade is six notches below the AAA grade. S&P's downgrading of Greece and Portugal tells investors what they might expect if they are holding bonds issued by these counties. A lower rating does not automatically trigger a sell-off of bonds, since investors look at many aspects of a company or country's investment potential. And a high rating does not guarantee that a company or country it will not default on loans. The US-dominated CRA's have been criticized for making high ratings based on the willingness to incorporate US ideas of best business practices and for the lack of transparency in their ratings. But countries can do little to curb their power. Downgrades have the inevitable effect of making potential bond buyers put away their wallets or for bond owners to trade them. This effect is a significant blow to a country like Greece, which will face added pressure from the EU and IMF to balance its budget as a condition for receiving a critical financial aid package.

How to invest in bonds
 
03:44
How to invest in bonds Bonds - funds vs. individual So now that we've looked at attributes of various bonds and other fixed income investments, let's see how you might go about actually investing in them. First, I'd recommend that you limit your fixed income investing to mutual funds, banks or insurance companies. With the exception of US Treasuries, buying individual bonds is generally not a good idea unless you have at least $50,000 to invest in a variety of bonds. Unless you have that much money to put into bonds, you'll lack the diversification necessary to reduce credit risk to a manageable level. Also, the secondary market in bonds for individuals is not very good, so you're better off sticking with mutual funds. You can, however, buy your own US Treasury bonds. You can buy them directly from the US government at little cost. But I'd stay away from US EE savings bonds. These offer poor yields and you can easily lose up to six months in interest if you aren't careful. EE Savings bonds have minor tax advantages, especially when it comes to paying for college, but the rules are complicated and limited to lower income people. Savings bonds just aren't great investments. Bond market is efficient - like a commodity If you decide to use a bond mutual fund for investing, remember that bond funds offer higher yields than banks, but the bond fund will complicate your taxes. See my tape on mutual funds for more information on fund taxation. Also, when investing in a bond fund, don't pay for a so-called hot manager who charges you high fees and justifies these fees by trying to beat the bond market. Bonds and other fixed income investments are largely commodity products. Consider, for example, the US Treasury market. The Treasury market is huge, and all the securities have the same, excellent credit rating. There's no reason to pay high fees for a US Treasury bond fund, yet some funds charge their investors over 2 percent in fees. These investors are simply wasting their money. With US Treasury bonds currently yielding about 7 percent, these investors are giving up almost a third of their income. They could just as easily shift to a US Treasury bond fund that has an expense ratio of only 0.3 percent. Watch out for temporary fee waivers However, especially with money market mutual funds, you need to be careful that the fund's current high yield isn't the product of a temporary fee waiver. To attract new investors, many funds waive their management fees for six months or so. This raises their reported yield, and new money pours in. After the fund has plenty of new investors, the fund raises its fees again back to its old levels. Maybe pay more for junk bond managers About the only time you might want to pay extra for a bond fund manager is in the area of junk bonds. Most investment grade bonds already are rated by independent rating agencies like Moody's or Standard & Poors, so it's doubtful that your bond fund manager can add value by picking out the good credit risks from the bad ones. But junk bond investing is trickier. Here it may pay to hire fund analysts who will dig deeply to discover a company's true ability to pay off its debt. In this case, it's more like trying to find a good stock. Still, you shouldn't pay more than 1 percent of assets to find a good junk bond fund. Copyright 1997 by David Luhman

7 Painful Ways to Lose Money Investing in Bonds
 
14:41
Did you know that there are 7 different ways to lose money investing in bonds? That’s right, investing in bonds isn’t always a safe and low-risk investment. However, once you know and understand the risk associated with bond trading, then the chances of you losing money go down drastically. To download your FREE Report called, “The 7 Ways To Lose Money With Bonds”, check out: http://www.retirementthinktank.com/bondreport Now bonds have traditionally been viewed as a very safe way to create a steady stream of cash flow, and many brokers and financial advisors recommend bonds as part of a solid balance to any financial portfolio. And all of that is true…most of the time. The big issue with bond risk (and how people lose money with bonds) is when any of these 7 risk factors arise. And even worse, when any of the 7 risks combine at the same time, it can prove catastrophic. I will give you a basic review of the 7 different ways to lose money in bonds here: 1. Lack of Liquidity in bonds – Although the bond market is larger than the stock market in total value, there are far fewer bond traders and bond investors comparatively speaking. So when issues arise with a certain bond (like a city or municipality defaulting on their bonds, bankruptcy, etc), it can leave the average investor high and dry with no one to sell their bond to. 2. Interest Rate Fluctuations – Bond prices are inversely related to interest rates, so when interest rates rise, bond prices (the price that you buy and sell bonds) goes down. And with interest rates close to all-time lows today, this is a bubble just waiting to pop once interest rates start rising. And if they rise quickly, watch out bond prices! 3. Bond Creditworthiness – This is an important issue as the creditworthiness of the bond issuer determines the yield, and thus your risk/return. For instance, you might not get a great return on a United States Treasury bond, but you can sleep at night knowing there is little chance it will default. On the other hand, you can get hundreds of times more yield on a low-grade junk bond, but the chances of you losing money (or even all of your investment) go up significantly compared to a US Treasury bill. 4. Inflation / Hyperinflation – Generally speaking, inflation usually means higher interest rates. And since we know that interest rates are inversely related to bond prices, high inflation can destroy the value of your bond. Not to mention, in times of inflation the cost of everything (consumer goods) is going up, while your bond investment doesn’t. So higher inflation could render your bond interest negative after you factor inflation into the equation. 5. Reinvestment Risk – This risk pertains to the opposite issue of the others in that it occurs in times of a slowing economy, or a declining interest rate environment. When interest rates go down, bond investors are forced to reinvest their bond interest (and any return of principal) into new securities that will have lower rates of return. Of course this will reduce the overall income that is being generated by your bond portfolio. 6. Bond Fund “Backfire” – Bond funds have traditionally been considered very safe as they spread the bond risks out amongst many different bonds (versus an individual bond). And this is usually the case. However, bond funds can “backfire” when a bond manager starts replacing bonds as they mature in a rising interest rate environment. And if the bond portfolio loses enough value that investors start leaving the fund in droves, then the bond manager might have to start unloading high yielding bonds to meet the early redemption's. This doesn’t happen that often, but when it does, it is painful to all involved. 7. Making Bad Bond Assumptions – Finally, don’t ever make the assumption that your bond or bond fund is free of risk and can just cruise on auto-pilot without you ever having to review or check up on. This is where many bond investors get into trouble by thinking they can buy it and forget about it. Stay educated on what is going on with your bond, watch interest rates, and don’t chase bond yields! Finally, always get the advice of a licensed bond specialist to make sure that you never get burned by any of these bond risks.

Economic trends support stocks
 
04:04
Right now, the leading indicator for the OECD area continues to rise, and this generally applies across regions. Looking at OECD's leading indicator for the entire OECD area, it is now over 100, and it will most likely continue to rise soon, as there is typically some inertia in these movements. This means that we have moved into the expansion phase, where returns for the risky asset classes are quite good, but slightly less than in the swelling phase, which we just came from. If we look across asset classes, it is remarkable that especially long-term bonds (and, in part, investment grade) have a lower return than their long-term trend in this phase. Also, government bonds in Emerging Markets may suffer from lower re-turns and increased volatility. Because of this macroeconomic environment, one should keep a continued overweight of shares, which is supported by our MomVol indicator. More interest-rate hikes in the US in 2017? At present, the interest rate market almost precisely expects an interest rate hike from the US central bank for the rest of 2017, so we would end at 1.25%. The problem for the central bank is that inflation, as mentioned above, already appears to be moderating and, in any case, remains below the bank's long-term target of 2%. This has already led to remarks that the central bank might completely cancel more interest rate hikes in 2017. However, as the US labor market is approaching a historically tight level, it is not necessary until we finally see the wage pressures that analysts have predicted for several years.

The power of the credit rating agencies - Docu - 2012
 
49:16
The financial markets tremble when the rating agencies disclose their ratings about the credit worth of a country. Government leaders lose their sleep over the rating of their country. But often the ratings of Moody's, S & P's and Fitch were incorrect. "It's just like making a rough estimate, giving a credit rating to a country is nothing but a board game." - Jerome Fons (Former Director of Moody's). The rating agencies, or credit assessors, are all over the news. Recently, there has been many downgrades of mainly European countries and companies. With as a consequence troubled financial markets and governments that are getting deeper in financial trouble. Reducing a country's credit rating can have such major consequences that government leaders, if their credit rating is at stake, are begging on the phone with the credit rating agencies. Who are these credit rating agencies actually? What do they base their credit ratings on? And are the numbers in the reports they assign to companies and countries correspond correct? For more insight into the power of credit rating agencies, VPRO backlight spoke with Jerome Fons, ex-director of Moody's, David Levey, former head of the Moody's European Country Awards, Timothy Sinclair, Professor of Political Economics at the University of Warwick, and Dirk Müller, former stockbroker at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. In addition, VPRO backlight looks with Portuguese mayor Carlos Carreiras at the consequences of Portugal's depreciation and talks with Ron Grassi, a retired lawyer who has started a lawsuit against the rating agencies.

Understanding Strategy for Obtaining Investments for Your Amazon FBA  Inventory [URDU]
 
11:58
Obtaining investment from investors for your Amazon inventory is not difficult as long as you are not a new seller but experienced seller and you are able to rank your listings easily. And you must understand how to explain these investment types to your investors. We usually classify Inventory investment in 3 types. Grade A, B & C. Grade A investment is for your listings which are already ranking high in Amazon. For such listings, you can always get investment very quickly and easily since the evidence is right there on Amazon's first page already. Anyone can go to Amazon.com, type the keyword and see your listing in top spots assuming that your keyword does have good search volume and not a dead keyword. You can give lower share to investor and keep higher share for yourself since this is almost guaranteed return for anyone in these kind of high ranked Amazon listings. Grade B investment is for very high potential niche where chances of ranking high on Amazon is very high, profit is good and potential is very high, however you don't have any ranked listing yet. You are yet to rank your listing and yet to obtain the top spot and be able to move the inventory once you reach that top spot. That means, investor's money won't give instant return to anyone and may take a month or 2 to build up the momentum but chances are high and this is not high risk but low to mid level risk investment. For this kind of investment you can offer higher profit sharing to investors such as equal profit split between yourself and your investor. Grade C investment is high risk investment since you are dealing with highly competitive niche where the volume could be high but profit margins may be lower and you cannot guarantee the ranking in such a crowded niche and you have to work hard for many months to achieve ranking. It's always harder to get investment for such niche. This kind of investment is ideal for a partner who himself/herself is the manufacturer of the goods and this partner is willing to give you the stock and asking you to rank the listings on Amazon.

Tanz says Investment Grade Ratings Mark Important Milestone
 
03:55
Stuart Tanz, president and CEO of Retail Opportunity Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: ROIC), recently joined REIT.com for a video interview at REITWorld 2013: NAREIT's Annual Convention for All Things REIT at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. ROIC specializes in the acquisition, ownership and management of necessity-based community and neighborhood shopping centers, anchored by national or regional supermarkets and drugstores. During the interview, Tanz was asked to reflect on the impact of being awarded investment grade ratings from Moody's and Standard & Poor's earlier this year. "Being investment grade is an important milestone for two reasons. Number one, it gives us the ability to access the unsecured bond market and more importantly, by having that ability, it gives us the ability to lower our cost of long term debt capital," Tanz said. Tanz also reviewed the high level of activity for ROIC in 2013. He noted that this year has been ROIC's most active in terms of external growth, with $368 million in acquisitions recorded as of the third quarter. "Our focus in terms of buying these assets has been on the West Coast in the primary markets. Looking forward, we're very excited in terms of looking at our pipeline. What we really focus on are what we call direct-to-owner transactions, which are primarily all off market," Tanz said. He explained that ROIC has been able to pursue such deals thanks to the "deep relationships that we've had here on the West Coast for over 20 years." Tanz emphasized that ROIC's primary markets are Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Orange County. "Those markets, in my view, are some of the best markets, or most sought-after markets, in the country for a number of reasons," Tanz said. Not only are these markets experiencing tight supply, but the demographic profile where ROIC is investing is "very, very strong," according to Tanz. He added that Seattle and the Bay Area have outperformed other markets on the West Coast, while Southern California "is really beginning to show some resilience in terms of coming out of the recession."

Most suppers have been in place for over 70 years, the paper used was not caulked around the perimeter of the scupper, after about 50 years rain water will get stuck sometimes by leaves, this water stand and get in behind the stucco thus the paper begins to get brittle than deteriorate, and voila, the beginning of a leak. A similar process happens with house parapets that are also over 50 to 70 years accept these are helped with the sun's heat which basically bakes the paper, making it brittle it then starts to deteriorate. Why? The sun also expands the wood cap especially after 50 seasons which creates small hairline cracks the rainwater now slowly enters, this rain sits on the deteriorated paper and start the process, of disintegration. Thanks for watching and have a great day! Teaching the world how to plaster one video at a time. FYI, most stucco and concrete mixes use Portland cement as a binder, for example.

US television - Peru 3 - A South American Legacy.
 
05:18
The Republic of Peru. An emerging economy with a stable macroeconomic investment climate and ‘investment grade’ credit rating. A nation with an open door policy for investment. One of the least restrictive countries in the world. Forming a land mass approximately the size of Alaska, Peru is home to just over thirty million people and borders Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile and Equador in the heart of South America, with a stretching coastline onto the South Pacific Ocean. The capital city is Lima. The national has been known to battle internal poverty rates, while poor infrastructure has hindered growth to the inland areas. However, Peru has sustained economic growth over the last ten years, while reducing government debt by more than half . President Ollanta Humala Tasso is maintaining the market orientated economic policies of preceding administrations, and the nation is becoming increasingly present in the global market. Since two thousand six, it has formed important strategic trade deals with the US, Canada, EU, and nations in Asian and South America, including its membership in the Pacific Alliance. The US-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement came into force in two thousand nine, creating important investment and trade between the two nations. The country is full of high potential sectors, including energy, transportation, tourism and agriculture. It’s stable and modern legal framework provides protection for foreign and national investment, and the economy has seen an average of six point four percent of growth each year. The extractive sector in particular has seen a rise in private investment, and accounts for over sixty percent of Peru’s exports. Peru’s abundant natural resources and range of climates are reflected in the economy, with global market participation in mining, agriculture, textiles, and energy. It is naturally bestowed with an arid lowland coastal region, tropical lands, and mountain ranges holding important mineral resources and many business opportunities.

John Anderson: Chairman of Triumph Gold Talks Goldcorp 19.9% Investment and Kaminak Takeover
 
18:35
John Anderson is a mining investor and the Chairman of Triumph Gold (TSX-V:TIG), a company that represents Palisade’s largest holding. Triumph Gold (formerly Northern Freegold) is an exploration company with a large low-grade deposit of 6 million ounce gold equivalent. John explains that Triumph is an optionality play. When the market moves you can see large swings in share price. Yet, there is a lot of exploration potential at the property. This is a leveraged call on gold and even copper. Triumph has been putting together a really good management team over the past year. Goldcorp recently bought a property close to Triumph, called Kaminak for $520 million. Triumph has the advantage of already having roads and other infrastructure nearby. Goldcorp has since invested in Triumph, and John says they have been fantastic to deal with. They like the team and haven’t placed any demands on management. Triumph also hired Tony Barreshi a geologist who is now their VP of Exploration. Tony has reviewed the data on the deposits and has some good theories as to the location of higher-grade deposits. They have four new exploration ideas and will be drilling a minimum of 12,000 meters this year. Palisade is a major shareholder of Triumph Gold (TSX-V:TIG & OTCMKTS:NFRGF) stock having invested $1M in the open market in the past 12 months.

VCIT  Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corp Bd ETF
 
14:21
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Bonds can serve as essential elements of fixed-income and equity portfolios. Since bonds are generally less volatile than stocks, they can be less risky investments for risk-averse investors. Bonds can help to diversify and mitigate the overall volatility of equity portfolios, while generating yield. However, intermediate-term corporate bonds, specifically, may not be suitable for all fixed-income investors since they have longer durations and may carry more interest rate risk than their short-term alternatives. Investing in corporate bonds alone can be difficult for investors to earn sufficient returns given the risk levels of these bonds and lack of diversification. However, corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) provide efficient alternatives to plain vanilla corporate bonds. Due to its low expense ratio, the Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corp Bond (NASDAQ: VCIT) is an efficient choice for investors who have medium-term time horizons and seek exposure to the corporate bond market. What It Tracks VCIT's investment strategy is designed to track the general performance of the Barclays 5-10 Year Corporate Bond Index, its benchmark index. The fund's benchmark index includes investment-grade, fixed-rate, U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities issued by industrial, utility and financial companies, which have remaining maturities between five to 10 years. Therefore, VCIT provides investors with diversified corporate bond exposure by holding 1,676 bond that have maturities between five to 10 years, as of July 31, 2015. An intermediate-term corporate bond is a type of fixed-income security issued by a corporation and sold to the public to refinance its operations, such as mergers, acquisitions, expansions or debt refinancing. This type of security has a maturity date, or the date the principal is repaid, set to occur within the next three to 10 years. When the bond market is in a normal yield curve environment, or when the yield curve is positive, intermediate-term corporate bonds generate higher yields than short-term corporate bonds. However, intermediate-term corporate bonds generate lower yields than long-term corporate bonds in a standard yield curve environment. How It Tracks It To achieve its investment objective, VCIT implements a passive sampling strategy. The fund holds a range of securities that mimics the securities comprising the Barclays 5-10 Year Corporate Bond Index. Under normal circumstances, VCIT invests at least 80% of its total assets in corporate bonds comprising its benchmark index. As of July 31, 2015, VCIT's top sector allocations are 62.8% industrial; 31.7% finance; 5.4% utilities; and 0.1% other. The distribution of the fund's effective maturities are 98% five to 10 years; 1.1% three to five years; 0.5% one to three years; 0.3% under one year; and 0.1% 10 to 20 years. The fund's holdings only include investment-grade bonds that are Baa or higher based on Moody's Investors Service's credit ratings scale. Like most p

Are Vanguard ETFs a safe investment  (BND, VCIT)
 
05:51
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Vanguard exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that focus on the bond market are good options for investors seeking safe investments. Bond funds generally have less risk than funds with exposure to the stock market. They pay a steady dividend yield, which is attractive for those seeking a return of income. However, they also have less potential for substantial price appreciation. Further, bond funds still do have certain risks, as do all investments. Vanguard funds have some of the lowest expense ratios in the industry, which is a very important factor. High expense ratios can eat into profits over time. Vanguard is well-known in the industry for minimizing its expenses as much as possible. Vanguard is the largest issuer of mutual funds and the second-largest issuer of ETFs in the world. The company launched its first fund in 1972 and it now has around $3 trillion in assets under management (AUM). Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF The Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (NYSEARCA: BND) is one of the safest investments offered by Vanguard in terms of historical volatility. It has a very low monthly volatility of 0.21%. This is substantially lower than the volatility for the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (NYSEARCA: VTI) with a monthly volatility of 1.11%. The fund also has a very low standard deviation of 3% as of September 2015. VTI has a yield of 2.13% as of October 2015. This is a low yield, but it reflects the low interest rate environment mandated by the Federal Reserve since the 2008 financial crisis. The expense ratio for the fund is extremely low at 0.07%. This is 91% lower than the average expense ratio of funds with similar holdings. BND seeks to provide broad exposure to U.S. investment-grade bonds and reflect the performance of the US bond market. The ETF tracks the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Float Adjusted Index. It has 7,701 holdings with an average maturity of 7.9 years and an average duration of 5.7 years. Vanguard notes the fund is appropriate for those investors who are more risk-averse and are seeking a steady return for investment income. Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corp Bd ETF The Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corp Bd ETF (NASDAQ: VCIT) invests in high-quality corporate bonds with an average weighted maturity of five to 10 years. The fund tracks the performance of the Barclays U.S. 5-10 year Corporate Bond Index. The fund holds bonds issued by industrial, utility and financial companies. Corporate bonds have greater risk than U.S. government bonds. The U.S. government has never defaulted on its debt obligations while corporations have. VCIT has total net assets of $6.3 billion, with 1,685 bonds in its portfolio as of September 2015. The ETF pays a higher yield of 3.38%. The average effective maturity of the holdings is 7.4 years, with an average duration of 6.4 years. VCIT has a monthly volatility of 0.38%, which is slightly higher than that of BND. The standard deviation is also higher at 4.39%. VCIT has slightly higher risk

Mortgage Crisis Explained: Finance System, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Global Markets (2015)
 
54:28
A mortgage-backed security (MBS) is a type of asset-backed security that is secured by a mortgage or collection of mortgages. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0990976300/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0990976300&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=59d18b8225ed6599b8b8050a523b67cc The mortgages are sold to a group of individuals (a government agency or investment bank) that securitizes, or packages, the loans together into a security that investors can buy. The mortgages of an MBS may be residential or commercial, depending on whether it is an Agency MBS or a Non-Agency MBS; in the United States they may be issued by structures set up by government-sponsored enterprises like Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, or they can be "private-label", issued by structures set up by investment banks. The structure of the MBS may be known as "pass-through", where the interest and principal payments from the borrower or homebuyer pass through it to the MBS holder, or it may be more complex, made up of a pool of other MBSs. Other types of MBS include collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs, often structured as real estate mortgage investment conduits) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs).[1] The shares of subprime MBSs issued by various structures, such as CMOs, are not identical but rather issued as tranches (French for "slices"), each with a different level of priority in the debt repayment stream, giving them different levels of risk and reward. Tranches—especially the lower-priority, higher-interest tranches—of an MBS are/were often further repackaged and resold as collaterized debt obligations.[2] These subprime MBSs issued by investment banks were a major issue in the subprime mortgage crisis of 2006–8. The total face value of an MBS decreases over time, because like mortgages, and unlike bonds, and most other fixed-income securities, the principal in an MBS is not paid back as a single payment to the bond holder at maturity but rather is paid along with the interest in each periodic payment (monthly, quarterly, etc.). This decrease in face value is measured by the MBS's "factor", the percentage of the original "face" that remains to be repaid. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortgage-backed_security The Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA), commonly known as Fannie Mae, was founded in 1938 during the Great Depression as part of the New Deal. It is a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) and has been a publicly traded company since 1968.[2] The corporation's purpose is to expand the secondary mortgage market by securitizing mortgages in the form of mortgage-backed securities (MBS),[3] allowing lenders to reinvest their assets into more lending and in effect increasing the number of lenders in the mortgage market by reducing the reliance on locally based savings and loan associations (aka "thrifts").[4] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fannie_Mae The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), known as Freddie Mac, is a public government-sponsored enterprise (GSE), headquartered in the Tyson's Corner CDP in unincorporated Fairfax County, Virginia.[2][3] The FHLMC was created in 1970 to expand the secondary market for mortgages in the US. Along with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac buys mortgages on the secondary market, pools them, and sells them as a mortgage-backed security to investors on the open market. This secondary mortgage market increases the supply of money available for mortgage lending and increases the money available for new home purchases. The name, "Freddie Mac", is a variant of the initialism of the company's full name that had been adopted officially for ease of identification. On September 7, 2008, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) director James B. Lockhart III announced he had put Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under the conservatorship of the FHFA (see Federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac). The action has been described as "one of the most sweeping government interventions in private financial markets in decades".[4][5][6] Moody's gave Freddie Mac's preferred stock an investment grade rating of A1 until August 22, 2008, when Warren Buffett said publicly that both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae had tried to attract him and others. Moody's changed the credit rating on that day to Baa3, the lowest investment grade credit rating. Freddie's senior debt credit rating remains Aaa/AAA from each of the major ratings agencies Moody's, S&P, and Fitch.[7] As of the start of the conservatorship, the United States Department of the Treasury had contracted to acquire US$1 billion in Freddie Mac senior preferred stock, paying at a rate of 10% per year, and the total investment may subsequently rise to as much as US$100 billion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Mac

This Year's Top Trends—Can Investors Use ETFs to Make the Most of Them?
 
04:35
More rising interest rates? Still strong equities? What trends will dominate 2018, and what ETFs could give investors an advantage? Gregg Greenberg and Simeon Hyman sat down during the Inside ETFs conference to discuss these questions and more. *** Hedging strategies have unique risks, costs and consequences such as fund management fees, rebalancing costs and taxable events, etc. It’s important that you fully understand the strategy you plan to use and read the prospectuses for any investments you intend to use as a hedge. Short or Ultra ProShares ETFs seek returns that are 3x, 2x, -1x, -2x or -3x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. These effects may be more pronounced in funds with larger or inverse multiples and in funds with volatile benchmarks. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus. There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective. The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET (when NAV is normally determined for most funds) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For standardized returns and performance data current to the most recent month-end go to www.proshares.com/funds. Short ProShares should lose money when their benchmarks or indexes rise. Short positions in a security lose value as that security's price increases. Bonds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. High yield bonds may involve greater levels of credit, liquidity and valuation risk than for higher-rated instruments. High yield bonds are more volatile than investment grade securities, and they involve a greater risk of loss (including loss of principal) from missed payments, defaults or downgrades because of their speculative nature. Some of these funds may concentrate investments in certain sectors. IGHG and HYHG do not attempt to mitigate factors other than rising Treasury interest rates that impact the price and yield of corporate bonds, such as changes to the market's perceived underlying credit risk of the corporate entity. IGHG and HYHG seek to hedge investment grade bonds and high yield bonds, respectively, against the negative impact of rising rates by taking short positions in Treasury futures. The short positions are not intended to mitigate credit risk or other factors influencing the price of the bonds, which may have a greater impact than rising or falling interest rates. These positions lose value as Treasury prices increase. Investors may be better off in a long-only investment grade or high yield investment than investing in IGHG or HYHG when interest rates remain unchanged or fall, as hedging may limit potential gains or increase losses. No hedge is perfect. Because the duration hedge is reset on a monthly basis, interest rate risk can develop intra-month, and there is no guarantee the short positions will completely eliminate interest rate risk. Furthermore, while IGHG and HYHG seek to achieve an effective duration of zero, the hedges cannot fully account for changes in the shape of the Treasury interest rate (yield) curve. IGHG and HYHG may be more volatile than a long-only investment in investment grade or high yield bonds. Performance of IGHG and HYHG could be particularly poor if investment grade or high yield credit deteriorates at the same time that Treasury interest rates fall. There is no guarantee the fund will have positive returns.

Seaberg on the high-grade, low cost and good recovery of Paramount Gold Nevada
 
07:17
"Grassy Mountain today is a high-grade underground mine. It will be an underground mine. It is 7.25 gram per ton. We have over 363,000 ounces that we will be mining. It is very low cost. It is high-grade and good recovery. It is a very simple profitable mine that not only has exceptional economics at today’s gold prices, but could withstand much lower prices." States John Seaberg, Executive Chairman of Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. (NYSE American: PZG), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky. Tracy Weslosky: John if you ask me you are one of the most undervalued gold plays in the entire gold market. Can you introduce the InvestorIntel audience to Paramount Gold Nevada and why you are so competitive?  John Seaberg: Absolutely. Paramount Gold Nevada, we are a U.S. focused, U.S. listed development gold company. We were the product of a spinout, a transaction that occurred in 2015 between Paramount Gold and Silver and Coeur Mining. We were spun out with one asset in Nevada, the Sleeper Mine. Subsequent to that we acquired Calico Resources and got 100% interest in the Grassy Mountain Gold Mine in eastern Oregon. Today we have two development stage assets. We are U.S. listed only on the New York Stock Exchange American. Tracy Weslosky: Grassy Mountain Project; I am going to have you step back and go back at it for a good short summary for those of us out there that are new to this particular project.   John Seaberg: Sure. Grassy Mountain is not a new deposit. It has never been mined, but it has been around for a couple of decades. It has gone through several different hands, different mining companies. It has had a lot of work done on it, but no one has ever embarked on the process or the journey to get it permitted. As far as I know we are the only mining company that has begun this journey of permitting a chemical mine in Oregon. Grassy Mountain today is a high-grade underground mine. It will be an underground mine. It is 7.25 gram per ton. We have over 363,000 ounces that we will be mining. It is very low cost. It is high-grade and good recovery. It is a very simple profitable mine that not only has exceptional economics at today’s gold prices, but could withstand much lower prices. We are excited to be developing this mine in eastern Oregon, which is in dire need of the economic impact of mining. Tracy Weslosky: The nameless broker that works with InvestorIntel sent me a buy recommendation from Roth Capital at four times your current value at $4.00. Can you tell me what the highlights were with that particular analyst report? John Seaberg: Sure. Roth has a buy recommendation with a $4.00 target price. I think what sparked analysts’ interest in the story is its simplicity. It is not a complicated mine, the Grassy Mountain. We also have the Sleeper Deposit in Nevada that I think is getting very little value because it is a lower grade deposit and we are not really focused on it. We are focused on Grassy, but it is a well-defined strategy to unlock value for our shareholders that I think the analysts appreciate it. Plus an exceptional management team and board of directors that have a lot of experience at developing these projects and bringing them into production. Tracy Weslosky: I know that people often feel uncomfortable when asked about their own background especially when they have had such a formidable background like you have.
